Default Upright Freezer Won't Get Cold
Model Number: FU169L   Brand: White-Westinghouse   Age: 1 - 5 years

Hello Forum,
We bought a White-Westinghouse upright freezer (Model# FU169L) from a thrift store. They told us it works, which is incorrect. It will turn on and run, but it will not get cold. I would really like to get my husband to fix it, considering we could really use it, and we got a great deal on it. My husband noticed that on the back of the freezer, it looks like someone cut the copper tube that connects the coils to whatever makes it freeze (I know nothing about appliances). We're assuming that's the problem, however my husband wants to approach the problem correctly to avoid messing up the freezer any more than it already is. If this is the problem, how would he go about fixing it? Could he just get a replacement tube, or can he solder it back together? I appreciate any help on this matter.

If this is true then return it.
To fix this you need a pro and it will be an expensive repair.

Since you are a newbie to fridge repair here a couple good sites with info on how they work.

Note: A fridge freezer and a freezer work the same.
A freezer just does not have the fresh food section.
